David Adeleke, popularly known as Davido, has charged the incumbent Governor of Osun State, Adegboyega Oyetola, with congratulating Ademola Adeleke, the state’s Governor-elect.
Senator Adeleke of the People’s Democratic Party defeated Oyetola of the All Progressive Congress in Osun’s governorship election in July.
According to the Independent Electoral Commission’s total votes, the PDP won 17 of the state’s 30 Local Government Areas, while the APC won the remaining 13.
Oyetola, on the other hand, has challenged the results, asking an Election Petition Tribunal in Osogbo to annul the elections.
In his petition, the Governor argued that the election was fraught with irregularities.
He also said that Adeleke ought not to have been declared winner, as he was not qualified to have contested the election in the first place, having submitted forged certificate to the Independent National Electoral Commission.
Davido, who is a nephew to Adeleke, has however, called on the governor to congratulate his uncle for the win.
“Your excellency sir, @GboyegaOyetola, when will you congratulate the incoming governor of your state, @AAdeleke_01?” Davido wrote in a tweet on Saturday.
Referencing the controversial 2018 governorship election which held in the state, the singer continued, “In 2018, my uncle congratulated you even though it was stolen. Do the right thing baba, one love.”
